More and more people are taking their four-legged friends along for rides in the car these days. Dog hair can quickly accumulate in the seats and on the floor. Vacuuming your vehicle can be such a hassle sometimes. It is time consuming and doesn't seem to always get all of the dog hair out. I have a pre-cleaning trick that helps.

I call it the 4-40 method. Roll all four windows down and drive 40 mph down the highway. Lots of hair gets sucked out which makes vacuuming quicker and more effective. It may seem silly but try it before you judge my idea. Watch all of the hair fly out of the windows.

A couple of key things to remember, do not open your mouth and, if your dog is in the vehicle, use a belt strap like I have on mine to keep them in the seat.
